Abigail Washburn and the Sparrow Quartet

Abigail Washburn

A few weeks ago we saw that Bela Fleck was playing at the Tractor Tavern and that he was playing with  Abigail Washburn and their new group, Sparrow Quartet. We didn’t know much about it but since we knew Bela Fleck (a amazing Banjo player) we decided last minute to get tickets and go see this. GREAT SHOW! I think this was one of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time, definitely in my top 5 best shows. If these guys come to town in your area definitely go see them if you are into folk/bluegrass/newgrass music.

Abigail Washburn lived in China for a period and is fluent, so she has blended Chinese lyrics with folk music. You might not think that it would work, but it does. She plays claw hammer style banjo and has an amazing voice. If you are interested in listening to some of the music head to:
